You should check the rear sam control unit.It is located in the right hand side of the trunk.remove the panel and you will see a fuse block.look directly below it.that is where the rear sam is located.remove the connectors and check for corrosion.this is a very common problem.the rear sam will need to be coded so take it to a reputable repair facility.

No rear brake lights and rear turn signals not working either front turn signals blink rapidly 2001 chevy HHR all fuses good all bulbs good no power to rear sockets 3rd level brake light works


Your front signals flash rapidly because your rear ones aren't working and that is normal and shows that a bulb in the circuit is out. At least that means the problem is not with the operation of the signal....good. Also your 3rd brake light works which shows the brake switch is working. Again...good.
Everything so far points towards your rear light clusters being at fault, although both at the same time is somewhat unusual.
You don't mention rear lights that come on with headlights or the reverse and fog lights. If nothing is working I would check the earth/grounds and the connection blocks that carry the power to the light clusters, but again both at the same time being faulty is suspicious and if the reverse, fog etc is working then why not the others?
I don't know about your model, but is there a separate fuse for the rear lights that are out? Probably not but worth a check.
Have you recently had something changed on the vehicle, or inspection work done? Maybe wires/connectors/grounds etc have been damaged or disconnected/reconnected wrongly in that area.
Try running a live directly to the cluster to see if that makes anything work as it may show a circuit break as the problem.
Sorry I can't be of more help.

How to change stop light globe on 2008 hyundai getz


Remove the two 10 mm (head) bolts that hold the stop light. This bolts are between the tail light assembly and the tail gate weatherstrip. You can see them without having to remove anything.

By using a masking tape wrapped flat screwdriver, pry "back" the whole tail light assembly. Once out, you can twist the brake light (or reverse, or turn signal) bulb plug, remove and replace the bulb.

The Getz uses standard two filament brake globes (1/4 turn to install).

Reverse light work but brake light and rear turn signal doesnt


If your brake lights and turn signals are out, you most likely have a blown fuse, burnt bulb, or a problem in the steering column.----------------------------------------------------------------------

Relpaceing reverse light saturn outlook 2008


To replace the reverse light, you have to remove at least partially the inside trim of the rear hatch/lift gate. There's video of doing this on the Chevy Traverse here, which is basically the same vehicle. If you need to work on the right-hand/passenger side, you'll need to remove the plastic cover over the door handle (the inside handle used to pull the lift gate down). The plastic cover snaps on and off, then there are two screws you need to remove. I used the tip from the video link above along with removing the screws under the handle (7mm worked, may not be an exact fit) to replace my passenger side reverse light unit since it was cracked. This was a very easy repair which cost me about $50 for the part, the dealer wanted almost $300 for the full job--shame on you dealers! Hope this helps.

Is the brake lites and turn signals all coneccted in the lurn switch?


Yes they are. The power flow for the brakes goes like this: Fuse ->Brake switch -> Turn signal switch -> Rear lights. The only difference is, if you have a 3rd brake light in your rear window, that gets its power directly from the brake switch. It does not go thru the signal switch first. So, if you are having a brake light problem, and your fuses are good, check the 3rd light in the rear window, if it lights up (assuming the bulbs are good, noone ever changes them), then the problem is most likely in the switch, hope this helps!

Change out a taillight


You want to change the tail light bulb?

The process for replacing tail light bulbs is the same in all models. If you have a burnt-out tail light bulb, you may need to replace the brake light, the reverse light or the turn signal. The procedure to replace each of the bulbs is the same.



    Instructions

    1. Open the Hummer's rear swing gate. This will expose the edge of the vehicle's tail light assembly. You'll see two small Phillips head screws that hold the tail light assembly in place. Put on your gloves.

    2. Remove the two screws from the tail light assembly. Pull the tail light out and inspect the back for two bulbs. The top bulb is the brake light and turn signal. The bottom bulb is the reverse bulb. Determine which bulb you need to replace.

    3Rotate the bulb's socket counterclockwise to disconnect it. Unplug the bulb from its socket.

    4Push the replacement bulb into its socket firmly. Insert the socket back into the tail light. Turn it clockwise to secure it in place.

    5Place the tail light into its cradle. Hold it with one hand and replace the Phillips head screws with the other.

The gear is getting stuck... i press on brakes and when car is in park it is hard to put on reverse.. the car runs great...


In all probability the brake sensor on the pedal is starting to work erratically. This sensor sends a signal to the shifter gate, and the gate will not open unless the brake pedal is depressed. I had it happen to me, and the only solution until i replaced the sensor was to hit the brake over and over until the stop light worked (You can check it while looking at the 3rd stop light in the rear view mirror). If the stop lights work, the shifter gate should allow the shifter to move out of park. This sensor/ switch is located about 3 inches above the brake pedal, and it is easily recognizable by the cable attached to it.
